    Anyone had this issue? Just happened to me. I hit play on Boardwalk Empire (Comcast cable card) and the screen just went black. No input or resolution change or anything. The box's remote light flashed whenever I hit a button, but even changing inputs and going back did nothing. Seemed like it stopped sending out a signal - except my TV switched back to 1080i when it switched to the Tivo, so I figured it had to be receiving something. My only recourse was to pull the plug. It's now loading...

    both of those are black screen, but not exactly the same. one was just black background in SD mode, and one was upon boot. Mine was after playing something from the HD menu.
